Paid Webinar - Are you perpetuating stormwater management's dirty little secret? - Thursday, March 19

Prolific speaker Andy Reese (PE, LEED AP, D.WRE) wants to let you in on stormwater management’s dirty little secret: you are very likely engaging in voodoo with your urban stormwater hydrologic designs but probably don’t even realize it.

The truth is, urban hydrology—including newer Green Infrastructure sizing approaches and even detailed modeling approaches—as commonly practiced, is an inexact science at best. Furthermore, it has been estimated that one out of every three design plan submittals has significant errors in hydrology estimates but only one in twenty is caught.

To complicate things, there are few places to obtain certain pieces of information essential to ensuring proper application, such as the inner workings of the "black boxes," unstated assumptions, and limitations inherent in our methodologies. So, what can you do to limit the voodoo?

Start by joining Forester University and Andy for the 2020 edition of this fan-favorite, live, educational webinar next Thursday, March 19, at 11 a.m. PDT / 2 p.m. EDT. With his unique humor, Andy will "lay bare" the most popular urban stormwater hydrologic design methodologies—including the Rational Method, SCS Methods, Continuous Simulation, and Green Infrastructure—detailing their key elements, assumptions, and very common misuses/misapplications. He will show the most common ways designers "cheat" the system and the most overlooked errors. He will help to expose basic assumptions within our models and methods.
